Chicken Noodle Soup
  • 4 1/2  cups  chicken broth
  • 1  cup  chopped onion (1 large)
  • 1  cup  sliced carrot (2 medium)
  • 1  cup  sliced celery (2 stalks)
  • 1  teaspoon  dried basil, crushed

  • 1  bay leaf
  • 1 1/2  cups  dried medium egg noodles
  • 2  cups  chopped cooked chicken or turkey
  •  Thinly sliced fresh basil leaves

1. In a 3-quart saucepan combine broth, onion, carrot, celery, basil, oregano, pepper, and bay leaf. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes.

2. Stir in noodles. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 8 to 10 minutes or until noodles are tender but still firm and vegetables are just tender. Remove and discard bay leaf. Stir in chicken; heat through. To serve, ladle soup into bowls. Sprinkle each serving with basil.

From the Test KitchenChicken Tortellini Soup:
  • Prepare as above, except substitute small broccoli florets for the celery and one 9-ounce package refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini for the noodles. Add the broccoli and 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms with the tortellini.
Parmesan-Pesto Chicken Noodle Soup:
  • Prepare as directed, except substitute 1 small zucchini, halved lengthwise and sliced, for the celery; Italian seasoning for the basil and oregano; and dried small shell macaroni for the noodles. Add 2 cloves garlic, minced, to the broth mixture. Add the zucchini with the macaroni. Meanwhile, spread each of 4 slices Italian bread with 1 tablespoon refrigerated basil pesto; sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon finely shredded Parmesan cheese. Place bread slices, pesto sides up, on a baking sheet. Preheat broiler. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat about 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve toasted bread with soup.
